Hello! My name is Ronny and I‘m Luke’s Dad. Luke suffers from a rare peculiarity with the name “Progeria”, which means that his body is aging 10 times faster than (y)ours. Therefore, our time together is very limited. In order to make Luke’s short life as beautiful as possible, I quit my job. We hope that with gaining more followers we might be able to draw attention to advertisers, who could help paying the bills. We are not begging for money, only attention!
Additionally, my wife and I hope that Luke’s life will be a little bit easier in the future thanks to his popularity. If people know him and meet him on the streets, they might hopefully not tease him or say that he looks strange.
We would rather hear them say things like “Oh, there’s Luke. I know him from Instagram” instead of hearing mean and hurtful comments.
Luke’s future won’t be an easy one because he will look different than what we would describe as “The Norm”. However, we hope deeply that most of the reactions will be positive and not hurtful. Would you join us on our journey and mention Luke to your followers #supportluke ?
Thank you for listening and greetings from Germany. Ronny-Luke’s Dad
